I read somewhere that people with anxiety LOVE rewatching old tv shows and movies they have seen millions of times bc there is no ounce of anxiety in wondering what the end result is. Now I know why I prefer to rewatch than start something new😅 — ☕️ (@overlyorganic) May 7, 2020 via https://twitter.com/overlyorganic

There are known strategies to reduce police violence. In the past, the federal government has been empowered to investigate local departments and force them to adopt these strategies and reform. It works: when they do, police shootings go way down. https://t.co/QaKuX8sI0K — Rob Arthur (@No_Little_Plans) June 1, 2020 via https://twitter.com/No_Little_Plans

Race science is not just a pseudoscience, it is the intellectual framework upon which our modern-day racial categories are built. It underpins the structural racism of our institutions. It is the toxin inside our minds, and the minds of too many of our leaders. — Angela Saini (@AngelaDSaini) June 3, 2020 via https://twitter.com/AngelaDSaini

It is empty when politicians call for healing and peace without stating antiracist policies they want to institute. Words bring momentary healing and peace. Policy change brings lasting healing and peace by rooting out the racism suffocating so many people. We want to breathe. — Ibram X. Kendi (@DrIbram) June 3, 2020 via https://twitter.com/DrIbram

We just launched #8cantwait, a campaign to get Mayors across the country to immediately adopt these 8 use of force policy restrictions that can reduce police violence by to 72%.

Within the first sentence of “The Stranger,” two subtle and seemingly minor translation decisions have the power to change the way we read everything that follows. https://t.co/D5gQt5lYks — The New Yorker (@NewYorker) June 8, 2020 via https://twitter.com/NewYorker

As a consequence, ultra-processed information is even more difficult to resist than ultra-processed food, because the reward comes from the pleasure of consuming the information *and* the pleasure of being praised for making and sharing it. — Alan Levinovitz (@AlanLevinovitz) June 9, 2020 via https://twitter.com/AlanLevinovitz

It struck me a few years ago, sitting there reading some book, as my mind began to wander, that the crucifixion of Jesus is one of those things about the Christian faith that (1) I don’t really understand, and (2) seems vitally important to understand. https://t.co/2FhN5Fi0J6 — Peter Enns (@peteenns) April 17, 2019 via https://twitter.com/peteenns

Christianity’s opening public move, so to speak, was an act of humiliation, shame, and defeat, unworthy of any of the gods. https://t.co/2FhN5Fi0J6 — Peter Enns (@peteenns) April 17, 2019 via https://twitter.com/peteenns

You could make a case that this was Lucy's 2nd attempt to hold the football still, as this attempt took place in the early 1950s. But in the 1979 strip, she seemed well intentioned (for once). pic.twitter.com/5MxmizqxwA — Tom Heintjes (@Hoganmag) August 2, 2019 via https://twitter.com/Hoganmag

Competence dwarfs all other virtues, and nearly every moral system ever devised aims first at disguising that fact. — Aaron Haspel (@ahaspel) October 28, 2019 via https://twitter.com/ahaspel

Today in Comics History: In "Peanuts" on August 2, 1979 (40 years ago), Lucy actually tried to hold the football in place so Charlie Brown could kick it. (Predictably, it did not end well for either of them.) pic.twitter.com/Ivf6dLzJM1 — Tom Heintjes (@Hoganmag) August 2, 2019 via https://twitter.com/Hoganmag

But if you model things that interact with human behavior, and you then show (either explicitly or implicitly) the results of your model to humans, you are via your model changing the very thing you are attempting to predict. Google's ad algorithms aren't just predicting… — Colin Wyers (@cwyers) October 29, 2019 via https://twitter.com/cwyers

Have just heard a paleontologist say this, which blew my head off: When a T-Rex was alive all Stegosaurus were already fossils. A T-Rex is closer in time to an iPad than to a Stegosaurus. — Marc Willcox (@MarcWillcox) September 2, 2019 via https://twitter.com/MarcWillcox

God I love this chart. For most of recorded history, if you had a kid their chance of surviving to age 15 was roughly a coinflip.
